What is Parking Violation?
A parking violation, parking citation, notice of illegal parking or parking ticket (depending on the jurisdiction) is a notice of monetary penalty issued for parking a motor vehicle in a restricted place or for parking in an unauthorized manner. It is against the law virtually everywhere to park a vehicle in the middle of a highway or road; parking on one or both sides of a road, however, is commonly permitted. However, restrictions apply to such parking, and may result in an offence being committed. Such offenses include, but are not limited to: Parking in a prohibited space such as a bus stop or in front of a fire hydrant or a driveway or a garage entrance. Parking on a sidewalk (unless specifically allowed by signs) Parking in or too close to a street crossing, railroad crossing or crosswalk. Double parking Parking at a parking meter without paying, or for longer than the paid time. Parking in a handicapped zone without a handicapped permit. Parking with expired or missing license plates, parking without proper vehicle inspection decal, parking without a zone permit in places where parking severely impacted. Parking without special permit, where one is needed (like a parking for employees of a company) Parking with the parking permit or payment receipt not visible in the prescribed way, like upside down. Parking on certain streets in a snow emergency when streets need to be plowed of snow. Parking for longer than the maximum time, often that is 24 hours. Parking facing against the direction of traffic (considered confusing to moving drivers, especially at night) Parking outside marked squares, for example angle parking where only parallel parking is allowed.
